We take specialized and evidence-based approaches to diagnose and treat pediatric heart conditions. The following is a list of heart conditions in children that our team of experts treats.
Heart defects discovered later in life, such as atrial septal defect, patent ductus arteriosus, transposition of the great arteries and ventricular septal defect.
When the aortic valve is narrowed or thickened, causes obstruction. This makes it hard for the heart to pump blood to the body.
Any disease of the aorta, the main artery taking oxygenated blood from the left side of the heart to the arteries of all limbs and organs.
An abnormal rhythm of the heart resulting from damage to any part of the heart's electrical system.
A rare disease affecting the connective tissue of the body, causing abnormal twists and turns in the arteries.
An opening between the heart's two upper chambers, which lets some blood from the left atrium return to the right atrium instead of flowing to the body.
When the common valve between the upper and lower chambers doesn't close properly, allowing blood to leak backward from the heart's lower chambers to the upper ones.
